Big Brothers and Big Sisters of Christian County is an organization that provides a mentor for a child through a one-on-one relationship. Vanessa Williams, who is the Christian County Site Supervisor of Big Brothers/Big Sisters, is currently looking for mentors to take part in this great cause.

Williams says that the biggest draw in Christian County is the high school mentoring portion of Big Brothers/Big Sisters, where the high school mentors meet with their little brother or little sister one day a week after school.

Of course, Williams sees, first hand, the benefits of the mentor program. The high school mentors as well as the little brothers and little sisters look forward to their meeting together every week.
